Second Career Success Story

Neeru is an internationally trained professional, with a Master's degree in Finance from India and experience as a Loan Manager who immigrated to Canada in 2004.

Neeru was laid-off from a cashier position at Mac's convenient store and visited our Career Centre in February 2011 to find out about the Second Career program in order to explore careers in Financial Advising and Business Insurance.

She applied to the Business Insurance program following successful completion of General Arts and Science, English Language Studies, level 4.

Neeru graduated in April 2013 with Honours and found employment at her co-op placement.

"A very big thank you to you because if it was not for you I don't know where I would have been. By introducing me to this program you not only gave earth under my feet but also sky over my head.

After completion of this program now, I have wings too, wings of knowledge which will help me to rise towards success. Please accept my [heartfelt] appreciation for this support and continue this good work of making a positive change in [distressed peoples’ lives].

Sincere regards, Neeru Jain
